I bought a new microscope on eBay by accident. –I made an offer that I thought was way too low and they accepted it.
Talk about a mixed blessing. I got a new microscope that I’ve been jonesin’ for the last couple of years, but I had to spend money I don’t have.
The microscope is also modular in design allowing someone to add this section, that for some -thus far unknown- reason, has a mirror that hangs off the side in a fixed position, facing straight down. –I suppose I could set my coffee cup on it, but somehow I doubt that that’s the original purpose.
I haven’t been able to figure it out by myself, so I’ll probably drop a line to absolute clarity and calibration and hopefully he’ll know and take the time to respond. In the meantime I’ll do a little testing to see whether or not it adversely effects the quality of the image.
